Now this is just about as neat a thing as I have seen in the last 38
hours.

----------------------
nntp//rss is a Java-based bridge between RSS feeds and NNTP clients,
enabling you to read your favorite RSS syndicated content within your
existing NNTP newsreader. RSS feeds are represented as NNTP newsgroups,
providing a simple, straightforward and familiar environment for news
reading.

nntp//rss contains both an NNTP server and an RSS aggregator, with a web
interface for administration and monitoring. Installation is as simple as
unpacking the distribution and running the application. It has been tested
against popular NNTP newsreaders, including Mozilla, Outlook Express,
MT-NewsWatcher, Free Agent, and text-based readers such as Gnus, tin and
nn.

Posting - You can now post entries to your blog from within your
newsreader. nntp//rss has support for the popular Blogger, LiveJournal and
MetaWeblog APIs.
